They’ve woven their magic once more and the latest creation from Roger and Andrea Holden, inspired by a scene from their Glendale home, is there for all to see.

For the owners of Skye Weavers have produced the very first sample of their brand new tweed, the Glendale Check and soon it will be available to buy.

It was back in August of last that the couple announce a competition challenging photographers to produce images that portray the colours of Glendale.  The revealing of their favourite seven images coincided with Wool Week, which celebrates the wonder of wool. 

The eventually winner was Clare Gray and now Skye Weavers have transformed her artistic shot into a colourful new check that looks set to be popular, certainly locally.

As her prize Clare will receive four exclusive Glendale Check cushions.

The Glendale Check will be in homage to the world-famous Glen Checks, which were designed in the mid-19th century and comes in a variety of patterns.

After hearing of her competition success Clare thanked everyone who voted for her, saying: "Thank you for all your likes. I'm a big fan of Roger and Andrea's work. I think their cloth is beautiful and to be a tiny wee part of the process is a huge privilege. I've never won a competition before, so for this to be my first has made my day!"
